00:00 - Apple-cheeked with alcohol and fired up from an online debate with a tireless Obama-basher, The Boys are ready to dive into the fray. After some FM radio introductions and a special prize given to Alice Farfnarfer of Dunbar, it's BOOM! POLITICS! Obama getting the short end of the stick by the GOP? And he's an ideologue? Really? Is it really a shame that the GOP has turned into The People's Temple Of Rush Limbaugh?

18:18 - It's a Booze Update! What are The Boys drinking? Is boxed wine better than bottled wine, and does "cheap plonk" tell the same time as a $4000 Rolex? Wait, what?

25:40 - He's a-pickin', and he's a-grinnin'. The big news stories of the day given gravitas, elevation and importance by having rubbish puns written about them, and delivered in between bursts of twangy country music.

28:56 - Spike wonders whether Mike (the boss) is enjoying the show, and The Boys sift through the weeks' correspondence, including a correction of Paul's research, a disagreement with Spike's analysis of Genesis and which Wii game they made someone buy.

35:07 - Local legend The Amazing Delores (now the Deceased Delores) wowed the crowd of drunks and lesbians (and drunk lesbians) at Paul's 30th birthday party. Find out why, and discover the little-known fried food-focused guitar solo embellishment of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Freebird"

Now you - yes, even YOU - can enjoy the energetic talents of The Hardest Working Great-Grandmother In Showbiz for a mere 51 American Cents! (correct at time of writing). The Amazing Delores put out a CD of songs back in 1994, called "Stop Messin' With My Mind", including such classics as "Rats In My Trailer", "Do The In And The Out" {{{shudder}}}, and "Goin' Over 40". OH. YOUR. GOD. Buy it now, before Time-Life reissues it and gouges you by charging twice the price: $1.02.

41:31 - This Week In Stuff! What the boys are reading/watching/playing. Paul has a non-flashback retro review of Pink Floyd's "The Wall", Spike's been enjoying "Bolt" and "The Kit Curran Radio Show", in which they find a link between local radio, "Local Hero" and a potential Star Wars spin-off series. Hmmmm. Also, which is better; cell animation or CGI?

56:36 Perhaps for the last time, we try to find out Whoooooo Is Nicking My Hot Water. Know who it is? Know what they're talking about? The water thief is a newsmaker from this past week - if Yoooouuuuu know who the water thief is, email the show here. Or, don't. S'up to you.

Aye.... very good.
